Centre of Excellence Programmes
Kamo High School runs a Centre of excellence programme for the following sports; Hockey, Rugby, Cricket
and Basketball. These centres are used to develop skills and fitness for players in the top teams as well as
developing potential players for the next season. COE programmes are dedicated one school period per
week (plus lunchtime) to use for specific training exercises, while they are still expected to attend separate
team trainings after school hours. We have a very dedicated and high level quality of coaches running each
of these centres; there is no extra cost to players above that of their sports fees.
The Kamo High School Rugby centre of excellence was
established by Brad Miller in 2013 who is a PE teacher at the
school with the aim to raise the standard of school boy rugby in
Northland. The centre focuses on nurturing and holding onto
talented young players and providing an organised rugby
programme to challenge, progress skills, fitness and tactics.
Students in the centre will have access to Initiatives and tools
aligned to the current NZRU high performance programme and
individual performance plans. The centre is for the 1st XV and JB9
players as well as younger emerging players who show promise.
